I routinely dock my 41' trawler solo. For me the trick is to put a long line on the stern cleat and bring the end forward so I can step from the cabin door down to the dock with bow (actually, just forward of midships) and stern lines in hand. Drop a quick knot forward and tend to the stern.

If wind or current present complications....well, that's why we have anchors.
